    I am in difficult situation as I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. The problem I'm facing is, I've installed the wordpess using quickinstall and when I try to access the URL via browser, the page doesn't load. Instead, a file is automatically getting downloaded with file name 'download' having the php script, which i am trying to open. This is happening for a simple file with .php extension created and accessed via my page URL as well.

    Earlier I have tried to change the settings in the control panel, however, I could not recollect what did I changed. I have basic HTML and server knowledge and far as I know, I think I'm doing things correctly but I'm stumped. I have provided the link below for checking please:


    Any help or suggestions to solve my problem, would be much appreciated.

    The fact that the file is sent to the browser to be downloaded, instead of being parsed on the server, indicates that no PHP handler is active. What handler do you have selected in the WebHost Manager in Home » Service Configuration » Configure PHP and suEXEC?
